Attention human race: the Final Wave is coming, and you'd better be prepared. It's just two weeks until the movie adaptation of Rick Yancey's The 5th Wave hits cinemas and it feels like everyone's getting stuck into the book at the moment before they see the film.

But if you're way ahead of the game and already up to date with Cassie's gruelling and intense fight against the Others, you're probably even more excited about the release of the final instalment in the book series, The Last Star.

How do you rid the Earth of seven billion humans? Rid the humans of their humanity.

Cassie Sullivan and her companions lived through the Others' four waves of destruction and terror. Now, with the human race nearly entirely exterminated and the looming 5th Wave rolling across the landscape, they brace themselves. For the next attack is more than possible - it's inevitable.

No one can anticipate the depths to which the Others will sink - nor the heights to which humanity will rise.

It will end where it began, where it had been from the beginning, on the battlefield of the last beating human heart. The Final Wave is coming. Be prepared.

AGH. Can't wait until it hits shelves in May this year? Here's the first chapter AND a bit of the second one to get you psyched:  

AHMAHHGGAAAHHDDD. Although we're also kind of dreading reading this one because literally, what will we do with our lives when it's over?

Let us know what you thought of the extract, and if you're excited for The 5th Wave movie with a tweet to @Sugarscape.
